The Tories are launching a £5 million taxpayer-funded ad campaign to promote the Union. And someone’s leaked the cinema ad to us…
A unionist conference recently met in Newcastle to discuss Scotland and the UK’s future. Unionists know that a second referendum is inevitable.
Small countries pursuing inclusive, socially responsible, internationalist agendas are among the most successful in the world.
On the night of 18th September 2014, I was literally jumping for joy seeing the results come in. Since then, I have changed my mind.
I’ve learned that a Union is only viable if each of its partners are being given an equal say. Since 2014 it’s become painfully apparent that Scotland’s voice is not only being ignored, but entirely dismissed.
I believe Scotland should be able to make all of its own decisions, get the governments it votes for and stand on it’s own two feet.
On September 18th 2014 – only just turned 16 years old – I took a leap of faith. For the first time in my life, I cast my vote in favour of Scottish independence. I voted for hope. I voted for my future.
A series of fresh opinion polls have shown increasing levels of support for Scottish independence – and in every poll Yes has been in the majority.
It couldn’t be clearer that the Scottish people want the opportunity to choose a different future from the current version of Brexit Britain that’s being imposed on us.
In 2014, Scotland was promised the ‘best of both worlds’ whilst being an ‘equal partner’ within the union. Well, it’s not quite worked out like that.
5 years on from the independence referendum, the promises made by the No campaign have turned to dust. Scotland now faces a very different future to the one that was promised.
A considerable number of supporters from various different parties believe in Scottish independence.
Labour MP Ian Murray: “The Labour Party in 2014 destroyed itself by campaigning for Scotland to stay in the UK because it was the right thing to do, and I’m sure the Scottish Labour Party would do the same again.”
Alan Cumming: “If you look at Brexit as another example of Westminster dictating a policy Scotland didn’t want, that’s what independence is all about. The people of Scotland should be able to decide what they want to do.”
Sir Billy Connolly: “Politically, Scotland’s in extraordinary shape. It’s beginning to stand alone. They won’t take crap anymore. They don’t want to settle for whoever England votes for. If Scotland would like independence, I would like it.”
